easy to put together 12/9/2016 1:28:09 PM

Pros: nice little fan to keep everything cool, USB 3 is awesome.

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: I use it every few weeks to run a PC backup, so it sees very little use, and I have no complaints.

Nice Case, but shorted out 9/3/2016 4:11:34 PM

Pros: Nice Tall case, very similar to mainstream products.
USB 3.0 Interface
Fan built in that's quiet.

Cons: Power Cord was shorted out. Wires appear to be broken inside the wire jacket.
Only Three rubber feet. Where's the 4th?

Overall Review: I'm in the process of going through obtaining my return materials. Hopefully the replacement item will work properly.
When I unboxed my item, I set it up, but it would not power on. So I moved the item, and suddenly it turned on. I set it back down, and it shorted out. I wiggled the power wire and the enclosure activity LED flickered. I located the short close to the wall transformer. Three eggs. When it does work, it's quiet and transferrs things nicely. Negative Two Eggs for shorting out, right out of the box.

Lasted 5 years 6/26/2016 9:58:30 AM

Pros: All metal enclosure
quiet fan
large rubber mounts to keep harddrive noises quiet and vibration free

Cons: Died after 5 years off use, just stopped connecting to the computer, I tried different USB ports, Different PC .. same thing, intermittently turns on and the goes away.

I originally thought the HDD died, but it turns out it was the enclosure.

Overall Review: for $40 it lasted 5 years, and didnt kill my HDD inside. I'd say it was worth it, so I'm placing an order for another one.

Easy product to work with 4/3/2016 4:54:17 PM

Pros: Easy installation. Just 2 screws to remove and then slip in the hard drive. On/off button easy to push and the blue light showing that it is on is easy to see. Fan button is easy to push on.

Cons: The reason for giving this only three stars is that it won't work on my computer that has Windows 7 Pro which also is the only computer that has USB 3. However, it does work on my eMac computer with Win 7 home and with my Dell computer with win 7 home. Neither of these computers have USB 3. I am using a Seagate 2 TB hard drive.

Great Drive Enclosure for xBox One 1/16/2016 9:44:36 PM

Pros: I paired this with a WD Black drive 2TB 7200 RPM (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236624)
This is fast and works great

Cons: None that I can think of or experienced.

Overall Review: This is a great price with the drive compared to other pre-made devices available. With the combines price, I could find a 1TB external storage and probably only 5400 RPM for the same I paid for these two.

claims large drive support, it does not 11/1/2015 11:22:43 AM

Pros: Solid construction, easy to assemble and still it is inexpensive. The two screws screw into brass screws rather than into plastic.

Cons: I shopped the Startech website for a drive with fan and 4tb drive support. I settled on this one and came to newegg to purchase it.

Now every 4TB drive I install is not seen by the equipment (dvd player).

When i connect the enclosure to a windows 7 pc, the drive is not seen in windows explorer, the windows disk management tool does display the drive, but with 2 partitions, with the first drive being 2TB and the second partition being the remainder of the space.

I re-checked the website and Startech still says "Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.", this is on the main product page while Newegg shows it as "Up to 2TB". Except I did not check the Newegg page when i selected the enclosure.

So far this enclosure has scrambled 2 drives. I was able to recover the first drive ok, now i need to try the second drive.

I was using this with a Toshiba PH3400U-1I72.

Overall Review: Newegg knows more about the product than the manufacturer?
